Booked in for an evening meal with my boyfriend. Both first time there and was firstly struck by the interior, which is quite different and not what you expect from the exterior - but in a good way.

If you're in carrickmacross you have to eat here. Our waitress sonya went above and beyond to take care of us and the chicken stir fry was the most delicious chicken I've ever had.
